Over the years we have seen countless movies which make it seem like having lights on while you and your partner have some sexy time is a bad thing… as if we should be scared of someone seeing our bodies.
Which is absolute bull, because we’re all beautiful and shouldn’t tell anyone to turn the damn lights on.
On the whole keep the light on bandwagon, a recent study has revealed that men actually perform better in the bedroom when the lights are on.
Research from the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology showed that light has positive effects on men’s sexual satisfaction, increasing testosterone levels and libidos.
The researchers studied the effects of light therapy (similar to that used to treat Seasonal Affective Disorder) on 38 men diagnosed with disorders characterized by low libidos.
By the end of the study, its author concluded, "Before treatment, both groups averaged a sexual satisfaction score of around 2 out of 10, but after treatment the group exposed to the bright light was scoring sexual satisfaction scores of around 6.3—a more than 3-fold increase on the scale we used."
The study hasn’t been found to be 100% conclusive as of yet, but it holds a lot of hope! Plus, think about it, why wouldn’t your man be MORE turned on when he gets to see all of your beauty!
It might not be the same as using a light box (which should be only used after a doctor consultation), but use this research to turn on the darn lights and you’ll both benefit!
